Bad areas on fairways

What a summer. Hot and dry and very little rainfall. Then it rained, all at once. 7" in one week with no sun to dry the course. What we were left with was a few areas on some fairways that lost some grass. So what are we going to do. First we are going to aerate it, then verticut it, seed it, fertilize it and topdress and give her a whole lotta love. Then hopefully in 2 weeks we will see some seedlings starting to pop. We will treat these spots as a grow in, so we will have to restrict cart traffic while we grow this in. With the cooler nights in the 50's, most of the stressed turf will recover. Please be careful in these areas as we try to improve the turf.
